In an area near Avon, Mississippi, a tiny Yorkie is lucky to be alive. A rubber band had been tightly wound around her muzzle twice; the emaciated pooch could not eat or drink. Fortunately a Good Samaritan found her; the Animal Relief and Rescue Fellowship in Leland has arranged for the dog’s care.
“…rubber band twice around her muzzle and leaving it there for what could be a week. As swelling began, the rubber band literally cut her to the bone, all the way through her muzzle. Her teeth are visible through the sides of her face even with her mouth closed since all of the tissue is gone. Watching her eat is absolutely heartbreaking!,” the organization wrote on their Facebook page under the Yorkie, now named Sugar, photos.
A reward has been offered by the ARRF for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. Information can be relayed to Ann Fratesi at 662.347.5573.
Sugar remains at the Greenville Animal Clinic. Donations can be mailed to ARRF at P.O. Box 66, Leland, MS 38756. Veterinarians are optimistic that one day Sugar will recover. Please share her story, and help this little dog find some justice.
